Scorpion Push Up
LEARN | Strength Foundations with Keighty Gallagher • 1m 52s
The Scorpion Push Up combination will bring lower back and hip relief while providing an opportunity to develop upper body and core strength simultaneously. Starting in a tall plank, slowly lower your body to the ground, and extend your arms out to the side, turning your head to one side. Raise the opposite foot up and over your body, aiming to reach towards your hand. If you hear your back crack, don’t be alarmed - this is a normal adjustment. Only go as far as is comfortable for you. Aim to keep both shoulders on the ground throughout the twist and return. Face to the other side and repeat with the opposite leg. After mobilizing both sides, return your arms to your sides to push back up to a tall plank. Feel free to push up from your knees as needed.
